Physics a study guide

  1. 1. Best to study from you Chapter ReviewWorksheets but here are some tips……
  2. 2. This Study Guide has some hints to study foryour final exam. It does not have everything tostudy. You should use your notes and ChapterReview Worksheets to also study from. It wouldalso be helpful to review notes and PowerPointsposted in the Netvibes Start Page.Link:
  3. 3.  Key Terms: Scientific method, Fact, Law, hypothesis, principles, the ory. Steps to the Scientific Method Scientific Attitudes What does it mean to say that if a hypothesis is scientific, then there must be an means of proving it wrong? How does science an technology differ?
  4. 4.  Key Terms: Force, net force, vector, vector quantity, scalar quantity, mechanical equilibrium, equilibrium rule, support force, resultant Difference between force and net force Net force on an object of rest How does vector quantity differ for scalar quantity?
